Are You the Winner of Our Captain Marvel Quiz?

Find out if you answered our trivia questions correctly and who scored free tickets to a screening tonight


It’s a big day in Hollywood. Not only does the spring movie season arrive this weekend, it’s notable because of the release of Captain Marvel, the first film from Marvel Studios starring a solo female superhero. Brie Larson plays the titular role in what promises to be the first blockbuster of 2019. (The film is expected to pull in as much as $150 million at the US box office this weekend.)

To celebrate, BU Today posted a trivia contest Friday morning. When it ended at 1 pm, we entered the names of everyone who answered all questions correctly in a drawing for two free tickets to a screening Friday, March 8, at 9 pm at AMC Loews Boston Common 19.

The winner is junior Aneesh Samineni (CAS).
